Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a seaside amusement park complete with carnival rides, arcades, mini golf and all the funnel cakes that you can eat. Great for families and the eternally young-at-heart, this California beach boardwalk transports you back to the days of the Beach Boys – no fuss, just fun by the seashore.

Carnival-style rides with names like ‘Logger’s Revenge’ and ‘Wipeout’ are sure to inspire the thrill-seeker in the group. For the more traditional, the Ferris Wheel and the Haunted House are no-fail classics. And no trip to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk would be complete without a ride on the famous 1924 Giant Dipper roller coaster or the hand-carved carousel from 1911 – both are National Historic Landmarks.

Even better – admission on the boardwalk is free.
